I have just noticed the Access Token has been removed from the Web IDE. It now directs users to generate an access token using the particle CLI.
This is a big pain for me. I teach design students. I’ve been doing this for 5 years with Particle. The reason our University chose Particle was because there was low barrier to entry. The idea that I’m going to get a class full of design students to install and use a CLI to generate access tokens is nuts.
Why did it go away? Will it come back? If I want to trigger a function on a Particle device should I be using a different method? If anyone has answers, or similar problems please let me know.
